Image 3

 

This stereogram is a cropped and 2x magnified version of image 1.

This image shows fossil 1 about 1/3 up from the bottom. Note the distinct shadow that shows that the shape of the object when viewed from overhead is relatively unchanged. The right-hand image exhibits some fairly severe jpeg compression artifacs in the region where the "stem" connects to the "berry". The "berry" is about 3 mm in diameter (about the size of a BB).

Both images were cropped from the much larger originals.
The right-hand image was rotated -6 degrees.
Both images were resized by a factor of 2x.
